2advanced has led the way with new and exciting ways of presenting their work. They really are true to their slogun of ‘Progressive Design Technology’ and over the years have gone through many a wonderful design change. The current version of their portfolio concentrates on the beautiful, lush backgrounds of the website.
A personal favourite of mine, 4design have always astonished me with the quality of their work. They also re-designed a freelancer forum I visit regularly, and did a brilliant job of that too.
I first came across this website when I used to run a CSS gallery of my own; and I fell in love with it the minute I saw it. A very nice header indeed.
Another one that was submitted to my old CSS gallery quite a few months ago, although some may not like it, I definately enjoy the clean lines and cool style of this portfolio.
Green, oh lush green. Modstudio have a wonderful nag for choosing good color, and I just love the apple!
Another cool portfolio, digimurai is definately worthy of praise – just look at that cool mascot.
I fell in love with the twirly, abstract effects on this one – fair enough the rest is bland and minimalistic, but I just had to show you guys those twirls.
I decided to put this one up because it was a typical example of a good, bold portfolio. The background does wonders for this one.
The most incredible background I’ve seen in my life, full of color and life. Wonderful.
